After early script drafts were blasted for switching up the origin story, the new trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles openly admits that aliens are stupid and that homegrown mutant turtles that also happen to be ninjas make so much more sense. It’s good that we’re all on the same page now.
This trailer also hints that William Fichtner may not be playing Shredder after all. It seems that Shredder is either a really tall, shadowy figure or a “robot samurai.” At any rate, now he’s capable of launching flying drone knives which really are no match for a bo staff. Perhaps the most astounding reveal is that Whoopi Goldberg is in this movie. Huh.
